The Venetian on the Las Vegas Strip will host an exhibit celebrating the legacy of the Grateful Dead.

The Dead Forever Experience will open one day ahead of the Dead & Company’s headlining summer residency at the Sphere on May 15 in the same two-floor, 22,000-square-foot space where the Venetian’s U2 Museum debuted ahead of that band’s Sphere residency last September.

The attraction will include an art display from founding Dead drummer Mickey Hart, a gallery of more than 100 photos of the band, and “Le Petit Mur De Son.” That’s a 1:4 scale, functional recreation of the infamous Wall of Sound, a massive sound system originally designed by audio engineer Owsley Stanley for the Grateful Dead’s 1974 concerts.

The exhibition will also feature a merch store, natch, where bargains are likely to be harder to find than an original 1967 Grateful Dead T-shirt designed by Allan “Gut” Terk. (Google it if you don’t already know.)

The Dead Forever Experience will be free to the public and open five days a week for the duration of the Dead & Company’s residency, which runs May 16 through July 13.
